Frustrated with another boring haircut when you wanted a makeover?

I have so many clients come to me wanting a makeover and sick of being disappointed by other Austin hairstylists attempts for a big change. This is another example of how important communication is. Listening, looking at inspo pics, taking the clients desires, lifestyle, and à realistic look into what you have, what you want and making it reality is what I do best. Don't wait! Book now and finally get that new lease on life you've been looking for!!

What Is a Mixie Haircut?

A mixie is an edgy haircut that is longer in the back, like a mullet, and short, like a pixie, in the front. It’s no secret that mullets made a strong comeback over the last two years with Miley Cyrus proudly leading the charge, but it’s also understandable why some people might be a little hesitant to jump on board the rocker-hairstyle train — it is a commitment. But the mixie is a good way to dip your toe into the business in the front, party in the back style.

How does it stack up to all of the other new short hairstyle looks we’ve been seeing? Mixie as a haircut feels uniquely different from what we’ve been seeing but also has a slight ‘70s retro vibe that feels familiar. At the salon, you’ll want to explain the mullet-pixie combo hairstyle to your stylist, but I also recommend going to a professional who specializes in this type of haircut. You really want to seek out a stylist who’s known for edgier haircuts — someone who gets the look and can also understand how to alter it depending on your face shape and texture.

💫With Hanna she naturally has pretty straight hair but she did have a good amount of wave left from her American Wave #perm so I used that to encourage even more texture through the length. This cut was done entirely using my straight razor to create tons of texture, weight removal and extra time detailing and personalizing this haircut specifically for her.

⚡️Washed with @hairstorystudio New Wash Original and styled with @cultandking Jelly, Hairstory Balm and finished with @unite_hair Texture spray.
